Maybe you’re entertaining guests this upcoming holiday week. Here’s a lovely offering for brunch from chow.com.
This is a recipe from Margaret Roach, a former Martha Stewart staffer and now author of “A Way to Garden.” She recommends this chili as a way to use up bits of beans you may have stocked in the freezer (she grows all kinds of beans in her New York State garden), but you can use canned beans and all the wonderful peppers from today’s box. She suggests you can also add some of your greens to the chili. Great idea!
This is an all-purpose recipe. Delicious on crostini, on roast vegetables or potatoes, stirred into a soup or served with beans. I remember reading about Romesco sauce for years and never thinking it would be something I’d like. Then I had to make it for a column for the paper – delicious! Now I’m a huge fan. This recipe comes from “Vegetable Literacy” by Deborah Madison.
This recipe is adapted from one prepared by Asha Gomez of Spice to Table at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. No lemongrass? It will be fine without it.
This is a recipe from Jerry Slater, former owner of H. Harper Station. This stuffing also works well for tomatoes.
This simple recipe came from Trader Joe’s. A great way to consume all kinds of peppers.
This recipe is from Eric Roberts of The Iberian Pig and was demonstrated at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market this summer. A lovely side dish, a lovely snack all by itself.
But first, a recipe for those tomatoes. You’ve eaten fresh tomatoes all summer, now start fall with a Tomato Margarita from seriouseats.com. You could do this with your peppers, too. Or combine the peppers and tomatoes. Delish. And so easy.
Love the slow cooker in the summer. Easy meal and less heat in the kitchen. I don’t remember the original provenance of this recipe. Sorry. Don’t forget to use your favorite Riverview sausage. Perfect if you’re having Labor Day company.
